|Description & Services|
|Description of service(s)||Recreation New Brunswick’s programs and initiatives are designed to engage recreation professionals, volunteers, students and the wider community in enhancing quality of life for the province.
Recreation New Brunswick is the Authorized Provider of HIGH FIVE® in New Brunswick. HIGH FIVE® is Canada's only quality assurance program for recreation and sport programs for children aged 6-12. HIGH FIVE® provides a range of training, assessment tools, and resources to ensure that organizations can deliver the highest quality programs possible. HIGH FIVE® ensures the recreation and sport leaders, coaches, and instructors develop a high level of knowledge and expertise in a children’s development, and provide them with the tools for enhancing and maintaining a high level of program quality. Research shows that the experiences children have in sport and recreation at an early age have a lifelong impact. Positive experiences in sport and recreation help children become capable, caring adults who in the future will contribute more effectively to the community.
NB PLAYS! is a New Brunswick-led after school initiative for children and youth ages 5 to 19. We promote a blended approach with emphasis on multiple and diverse components. NB PLAYS! highlights positive mental health, physical activity, healthy eating, community strengths and learning experiences as key elements in balanced after to find their passion and get moving.
Inclusive Recreation Activity Fund
The Inclusive Recreation Activity Fund, formally the Provincial Recreation Access Fund, exists to provide support and facilitate direct participation for those with disabilities. It is our intention to reduce or eliminate barriers that hinder participation. This re-imagined fund can help cover the costs of registration fees, transportation costs, and equipment needs of individuals who would not have been able to take part in physical activities without this program. New for 2015, a portion of the overall fund will be used as a one-time annual grant. This grant can be applied for via a municipality or organization and go towards inclusive recreation programming or inclusive upgrading of a facility.
